1 cup water

2 garlic cloves, peeled

1 can garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained

1 lemon, zest and juice

2 Tbsp. tahini

1/2 tsp. sea salt

1 1/2 tsp. cumin

1/2 tsp. paprika

2 Tbsp. olive oil

Optional Ingredients:

1 Tbsp. fresh chives

1 Tbsp. fresh parsley

1 tbsp. fresh cilantro


In a small sauce pan bring the water to boil. Add in the peeled garlic cloves and boil for 3 minutes.  Remove the garlic from the water, place in a blender or food processor and set aside the water for later use.

In a food processor or blender combine the garlic, beans, lemon zest and juice, tahini, salt, cumin, paprika and olive oil.  Process until smooth by adding 3-4 Tbsp. of the reserved garlic water until you get the desired consistency.

Transfer to a serving bowl and sprinkle with addition paprika or stir in 1 of the optional herb ingredients.
